Thanks All!

The responses were great and I learned a little about HAM. Of all the different antenna's they seem to have some of the most varied.

Tim, that's amazing you know those by their frequencies!

Antenna Spotting in Kenosha #6

This one's really easy to see on 22nd Avenue on the corner of 76th Street I think.

Is it a TV antenna?

Thanks for ID'ing those antennas.... couple of questions now.

So, none of those are actually TV antennas? I know it's hard to tell from a photo but do you think they are homemade?

Also I wonder if they have some sort of TV reception with those antennas?
